    Hey guys... new to the forums but have always seen them here. Just never posted.

    Curious, I am currently building a rig and trying to get the best of these two PSUs:

    Antec Trio 650w or BFG 650w.

    Yes, I am familiar with Thermaltalke, OCZ, etc... not interested. Mainly b/c that's not where I get my discounts and on a bit of a budget. Sure most of you understand :)

    Ultimately though, I'm trying to find out which product would be better to put in my machine and why or why not it would be best? Below I included my specs:

    Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4GHz (Will OC)
    eVGA 680i SLI mobo NF63
    eVGA 8800GTS 640mb
    Western Digital 500GB SATA HDD 7200RPM
    Antec 900 Gaming case (5x120mm fans)(1x200mm)
    PSU - Undecided
    Kingston HyperX DDR2-800 SLI 2GB (2x1GB)
    Sound Blaster Audigy SE (BACKUP)
    Pioneer Optical Drive CD/DVD/DL
    XP Pro

    Thanks for the help guys!

    Antec now uses worse quality parts so I would go for the BFG, but I'm not a big fan of either. If you are set on one of the two, I would go BFG, but still recommend otherwise.

    BFG's arent too bad, theyre built by topower (a pretty respected brand)
